Frases Norman Schwarzkopf

„Any soldier worth his salt should be antiwar. And still there are things worth fighting for.“

— Norman Schwarzkopf
Context: A professional soldier understands that war means killing people, war means maiming people, war means families left without fathers and mothers. All you have to do is hold your first dying soldier in your arms, and have that terribly futile feeling that his life is flowing out and you can’t do anything about it. Then you understand the horror of war. Any soldier worth his salt should be antiwar. And still there are things worth fighting for. As quoted in U.S. News & World Report, Vol. 110, Issues 5 (1991 Feb 11), p. 32
